Bridgwood Cream Jug, Opium Smoker, English Chinoiserie, Antique 19th C

Lovely Antique English Porcelain Creamer by Sampson Bridgwood & Son of Longton, Staffordshire. It is unmarked, but I am also offering on Ruby Lane a marked companion piece, the waste bowl for a tea set, which IS marked with the Bridgwood mark for 1885.

The jug measures about 5" (14 cm) high. It is a black underglaze transfer with bright overglaze enamels in turquoise, yellow, pink, green, and orange. The 2 figures are a servant stirring up the coals of the brazier so that the nobleman is able to light his opium pipe.

Excellent condition. Nice ring. No chips, no cracks, no crazing, no repairs. Even the gilding is in good shape!

The pattern name "Pekin" was used by 2 other makers of this pattern: T. G. & F. Booth and Beech & Hancock. So far I haven't found a pattern name on the Sampson Bridgwood version.
